Varis Leichtman Studio

The Life and Legacy of Benny Goodman

SESSION 4: A (GOOD)MAN FOR ALL SEASONS

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).​

Goodman set up shop in New York in 1929, and within months became one of the most in-demand musicians in the commercial radio, recording and even movie-soundtrack studios. We’ll sample some of the literally hundreds of jazz recordings Goodman made with giants of the era: Ethel Waters, Bix Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, Coleman Hawkins, Joe Venuti, Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday. And that’s just for starters!
